The ‘war on coal’ is over. The next climate battle has just begun

The night Barack Obama claimed victory in the Democratic presidential primaries in 2008, he predicted future generations would look back and say, “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Report offers roadmap for CCS to help Calif. achieve climate goals, set example for others

Carbon capture and storage could reduce California emissions 15%, save $750M a year: report

Dive Brief:

  • Carbon capture and storage technology isn’t a "silver bullet” — but it could play an important role in reducing emissions from California’s electricity and industrial sectors, according to a new report from the Energy Futures Initiative (EFI) and Stanford University.

Report calls on California to lead on carbon capture for deep decarbonization

California, a state frequently rocked by disasters exacerbated by a warming climate and a leader among U.S. states on actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, has an opportunity to lead the development of carbon capture technologies, a new report concluded.

A new report recommends adding carbon capture technologies to some gas-fired power plants in California to back up wind and solar generation and create jobs.

SPE WA Reducing Net Carbon Footprint Webinar: Prospects and Challenges for Carbon Capture and Storage: A California Perspective

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a critical technology for deep decarbonization of the electricity and industrial sectors. As the 5th largest economy in the world, California is an interesting case study for examining the role that CCUS can play in achieving its ambitious mandate for a zero emission electrical grid by 2045 and goals for economy wide net zero emissions by 2045.
